Treasures on Friday
This hutch came with the house. We love the color and character. It was in the dining room, serving as a pantry, but when we added storage with the kitchen remodel, we moved it into the living room.
The top half is filled with all kinds of treasures. Chickie's senior picture, wonderful old books, one of our wedding pictures.
Here are some of my favorite books. They are all by Grace Livingston Hill, who is my favorite author. She was the daughter of a minister, and almost died at birth. Her parents were thankful for her life, and named her Grace. She married a minister, and when she was widowed at a young age, she decided to support her family by writing. After publishing a few of her books, Grace made the decision to put the message of salvation in each book.
I love the language of the books, the purity, the time period (late 1800's - early 1900's), the old fashioned romance. I have read many of her books countless times. These are just a few.
Make sure to visit Cindy for Show and Tell Friday, and Debra for Vintage Inspiration Fridays, two wonderful weekly parties!
Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
